Emergency Childcare Collaborative Offers Daycare for Essential Workers
Posted on 03/23/2020
The state has taken courageous efforts to help slow the spread of COVID-19 and “flatten the curve”. Our hope is that these precautions will give our medical providers, emergency responders, and other essential staff the time and capacity to contain the virus. However, we know that many of these workers are now without childcare options.
The Emergency Childcare Collaborative has come together to share staff and locations to serve 60 children with free daytime childcare. Consider donating to the Emergency Childcare Fund through the Pottawattamie County Community Foundation by visiting www.ourpccf.org or calling 712-256-7007.
